Synopsis:

Hidenori Kimura, renowned system and control theorist, turned 60 years of age in November, 2001. To celebrate this memorable occasion, his friends, collaborators, and former students gathered from all over the world and held a symposium in his honor on November 1 and 2, 2001, at the Sanjo Conference Hall at the University of Tokyo. Reflecting his current research interests, the symposium was entitled "Cybernetics in the 21st Century: Information and Complexity in Control Theory," and it drew nearly 150 attendees. There were twenty-five lectures, on which the present volume is based. Hidenori Kimura was born on November 3, 1941, in Tokyo, just prior to the outbreak of the Second World War. It is not hard to imagine, then, that his early days, like those of so many of his contemporaries, must have been difficult. Fortunately, the war ended in 1945, and his generation found itself thoroughly occupied with the rebuilding effort and with Japan's uphill journey in the last half-century. He entered the University of Tokyo in 1963, received a B. S. in 1965, an M. S. in 1967, and, in 1970, a Ph. D. degree for his dissertation "A Study of Differential Games.

Product Description: This festschrift volume pays tribute to Hidenori Kimura and his outstanding achievements in control theory, signal processing, and modeling. The 20 invited contributions presented here are an outgrowth of a symposium held in November 2001 in Tokyo, Japan, celebrating Kimura's 60th birthday. Reflecting his recent research interests, the symposium was entitled "Cybernetics in the 21st Century: Information and Complexity in Control Theory." The chapters are classified into five main areas related to Kimura's work: signal processing, identification, robust control, hybrid, chaotic and nonlinear systems, and control applications. Many of the contributions highlight real-world and industrial applications.
